'Super Twister' Sculpture to be Dedicated Thursday, April 10

"Super Twister," the state-funded art project by Alice Aycock that won the competition to be placed near the entrance to the College of Medicine's CARE/Crawley Building, will be dedicated in a ceremony at noon Thursday, April 10, in Medical Sciences Building Room E-351.

A reception will follow in the Dr. Stanley and Mickey Kaplan Reception Hall, CARE/Crawley Atrium.

Aycock, a New York-based sculptor known for her large-scale public works, and Thomas Boat, MD, Christian R. Holmes Professor and Dean of the College of Medicine and UC vice president for health affairs, will participate in the April 10 event.

At 5 p.m., Aycock will give a presentation hosted by the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) in Aronoff 4400.

Please direct questions to linda.pettyjohn@uc.edu or call 513-558-7333.

The CARE/Crawley Building, which opened in August 2008 as Phase I of the Medical Sciences Building (MSB) Rehabilitation Project, qualified for a state-funded art project under Ohio’s Percent for Art legislation. The legislation requires that 1 percent of the total capital appropriation for new or renovated public buildings costing more than $4 million be provided for the acquisition, commissioning and installation of works of public art.
